More local pictures

Once again, I seem to be short of the tuits required to sort out my ever-growing backlog of photographs, so just for once I’m going to refer to someone else’s. Pictures of Gateshead and the Surrounding Area has lots of photos taken by Andy Williamson which are well worth your time.

But what led me back to the site was his collection of old postcards, including lots of old trams in familiar locations, some of which have changed more than others. As the site has a message indicating that non-commercial use of the pictures is allowed, provided a credit and a link are given, I’m including this one, which is an undated postcard showing a tram at the Saltwell Park terminus.

Hasn't changed much

It’s labelled as Coatsworth Road, but it looks more like Brinkburn Avenue to me! Lots more pictures on the site – have a look.
